Hi Brewsky

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you are making multiple checkboxes and when you copy paste them when you click on one of them it duplicates across all of them.

 

Once you copy and paste the check boxes, double click on that box > Go to  'General Tab' and rename the box to a different name.

Note: If the name of all the checkboxes is same then it will replicate the affect across all the checkboxes.

 

Hope it will help

 

Regards

Amal

One of the best, free references for making forms is by Ted Padova, PDF guru who is now retired. He put his guide to making PDF forms on his website for free downloading.
